Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 12,060 model year 2021 ID4s.
Incorrect rear outboard seat belt assemblies without an automatic locking retractor (ALR) function may have been installed, which can prevent the child restraint system from securing properly.
An unsecured child restraint system can increase the risk of injury in a crash.
What to do
Dealers will inspect, and replace -- as necessary -- the rear outboard seat belt assemblies, free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed October 1, 2021.
Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at (800) 893-5298. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 69CQ.
